Sport Specific Conditions

Running is a popular form of exercise that is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. However, it is also a high-impact activity that can lead to a range of injuries. Running-specific injuries can occur due to a variety of factors, including overuse, poor form, improper footwear, and training errors. Some common injuries seen in runners include plantar fasciitis, shin splints, knee pain, Achilles tendinitis, and stress fractures.

The pathophysiology of these injuries can vary depending on the specific injury. For example, plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. Shin splints are caused by overuse of the muscles and tendons in the lower leg, leading to pain and inflammation. Knee pain can result from patellofemoral pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, or other forms of tendonitis or bursitis.

It is essential to address these injuries with a rehab specialist who understands the rigor and mechanics of running. At Apollo Performance Chiropractic, we have spent our careers rehabbing and coaching runners. At one time, Dr. Poniros was even a  Strength & Conditioning Specialist who coached Team Hoka. We understand the unique challenges that runners face and the types of injuries they are most likely to sustain. We have used our experience to treat runners of all levels, from Olympic finalists to pole vaulters to weekend warriors.

Trust your rehab to a provider that can take you out of pain, increase functional output, and help you program your return to running pain free and with increased power and efficiency.
